The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating black fruits with a lively backbone and fine-grained tannins to support, finishing long and spicy.

(JS 93-94 points) Plenty of blueberries and violets with some crushed dark fruit. It’s full and nicely layered with a soft, plush texture. From organically grown grapes.

Chateau Mangot

Chateau Mangot is a Right Bank Bordeaux estate situated in the east of the Saint-Emilion appellation, within the boundaries of Saint Etienne de Lisse. The estate has a long history dating back to 1546, described in 1559 as having plots of vines planted in ‘belts’ and ‘lines’.

The estate’s 85-acre vineyard is planted primarily with Merlot complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 40 years with some Merlot parcels over 60 years of age. The vineyard has four zones of terroir that include 21 separate plots at altitudes between 115 and 280 feet. Soils are mostly clay and limestone making for interesting final blends. The greater limestone presence also gives the Mangot wines density and fullness while retaining freshness, tightness and minerality.
